I`ll second everything Barry said. Karen Allen has been one of my favorites ever since I saw her in Animal House

barryFeb 20, 2008

If I"m the first person to inaugurate this site, then I am truly surprised. I"m not sure if I saw every movie that Karen has been in, but she always does a great job.
Every actor and actress has a certain quality. Her greatest quality is her ability to be believable no matter what role she is playing and she has one more great quality, and that is her great beauty. I"m just waiting for her to bring home an Oscar so that I can tell all my friends,"Seee?" Karen, you"re awsome! One of your many true fans. Blackhat Barry.
